Just a quick background, my son has outgrown his crf230f and I have an oppurtunity to get a clean older 96 XR250R at a price that I can afford to do any maint. or bling needed. Biggest enemy of this bike is that it sat unused in a shop/barn for most of the last 6-8 years. What are the pros / cons of these models? Hard to kickstart hot or cold ? Any must do power up mods? Handling compared to most other bikes? Any advise would be appreciated thanks.
